Football - Brewers boss ponders changes

Burton boss Gary Rowett could make changes to his side at Accrington following Albion's midweek exploits in the Capital One Cup.

PA Sport Report

The Brewers took Premier League club Fulham all the way to penalties in their second-round tie on Tuesday night, so there might be a few drained legs among Rowett's ranks.

Adam McGurk is likely to return after a sore knee while fellow striker Michael Symes, whose header put Burton 2-1 in front in extra time against the Cottagers, and midfielder Jimmy Phillips could come into contention for starting roles after impressing from the bench in midweek.

Midfielder Alex McDonald (calf) is out, though, while striker Billy Kee (thigh) and defender Zander Diamond (foot) are both close to their comebacks.
